62nd Anniversary of Armistice ending the Korean War, July 27, 2015

Sixty-two years ago July 27, 2015, U.S. Army Lieutenant General William Harrison, Jr., representing the United Nations Command (UNC), and North Korean General Nam Il, representing the North Korean People's Army and the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army, signed the Korean Armistice Agreement ending hostilities in Korea.

Although the agreement was designed to "insure a complete cessation of hostilities and of all acts of armed force in Korea until a final peaceful settlement is achieved," such settlement has still not occurred, and technically and even to some extent militarily, the Korean War still goes on!

Even today some 30,000 U.S. troops are still present in Korea!

The Korean War and Korean Service Veterans Association of Lake County, Chapter 169, Inc, serving northern Lake and portions of Sumter and Marion Counties, including The Villages, will recognize this anniversary with ceremonies beginning at 10:00 a.m. at two locations:
